Day 2 of our trip home I saw a billboard advertising North America's Largest Amethyst Mine. Of course we had to stop! My birthday is in February for crying out loud!!!
(hint hint hubby...10th anniversary not too far away)
Away we went on an amethyst digging adventure. It was so much fun hunting for treasure...until I sliced my hand open. Raw amethysts are very very sharp! Anyway, wasn't too serious and we ended up with some really nice pieces.
